Twilight by Earleywine

This is one of my older paintings. I decided to post it because of how I did it :). I learned a lot from this painting. To do the highlights on the mare and colt, I painted a thick layer of white. Let it dry, and then I glazed transparent colors over the top. So when the light hits it, it goes through the colors - hits the white - and bounces back. It kind of takes on a life of its own - in fact, when I took it to an art show I watched people move the painting to look behind it.......... they thought I had put some lights behind the frame to make it glow. hahaha
